The last leaves of autumn have fallen and winter is here. A little fox, a small rabbit, and a young girl are all asking their mothers if it is going to snow tonight. There is a cold wind and the bushes are bare. The foxes have grown thick fur and the little girl and her mother have made jam with the last of the berries. Where is the snow the young ones ask? Will is arrive soon?

With a beautifully lyrical text that seems to sing off the pages, this lovely picture book will delight young children who are eager to see the first snow of the season. Rich warm oil paintings perfectly compliment the text in this memorable book.
